17 Weeks

17 weeks









On Friday I hit the 17 week mark.

I haven’t gained any weight since the last update. Not sure how that’s possible…just look at this pic and the one from my 15 week update. The baby bump is definitely bigger!

A couple weeks ago I went through 2 gallons of milk in 1.5 days. I’ve been craving & drinking lots of milk but nothing like I did those few days. I’ve also been munching on Thin Mints…not really a craving, just an indulgence. Thanks to Hubsy, I have 3 boxes in the freezer right now.

Also, on Friday we found out that we are having 2 girls. That’s right, TWO girls! We aren’t going to assign names until we see them but the names we have picked out are Tillie Ann & Tensley Kate. I affectionately call them TNT. 
There’s going to be lots of bright girly colors in our future!

Also, after the ultrasound, I learned where the girls are positioned so now I’m pretty sure the weird feelings I’ve been having have been the girls moving. Friday night I had hubsy push on my belly in a spot where I had been having those feelings and he felt a soft tap, tap. The look on his face made me tear up. It was an unforgettable moment!

15 Weeks

15 Weeks

Today, I am 15 weeks.

I am finally starting to feel like I look pregnant rather than that I’ve been raiding the pantry a little too much.

I haven’t weighed myself but I’m guessing I’ve gained around 5 lbs. hopefully, I’m not too far off. The only maternity clothes I’m wearing are pants/jeans. I suspect that I may be buying maternity shirts in a couple of weeks or so.

I haven’t really had any strong cravings but I’ll always eat Mexican food & drink chocolate milk.

Still no nausea, thank goodness.

I definitely have the pregnancy congestion.

The fatigue has faded but I still have trouble at night. I will sleep for a couple hours then wake up for an hour or so. I take the occasional nap but I now feel like I can function throughout the day without one. Last night I had a night terror. When I was finally able to wake up I reached over and grabbed hubsy and scared him to death. I held on to him tight until I finally fell back asleep. *shudders*

A few days ago, I felt a thud just below my belly button. I wonder if it was the babies moving…

Me & Old Man Winter Do Not Get Along

It’s the end of day 2 of being snowed in. We, along with almost have of the country experienced a massive snow storm this week. I look out on my front porch and see 3-4 foot snow drifts. I look out my back door and I see the same thing. I haven’t left the house in 2 days and tomorrow will be my 3rd day. Surprisingly, I haven’t had cabin fever too bad. I think because I know it’s freezing outside (literally, our wind chill has been in the negative the last two days) and I HATE to be cold.

So, besides massive snow storms, here are some other reasons I do not like winter. At. All.
1. The air is dry. My skin & my sinuses suffer greatly with this dry air. We currently have 2 humidifiers in our bedroom, one in our living room an one in our laundry room. Oh, and today I put a pot of water on the stove in hopes to add even more moisture in the air.

2.  I always get sick. It never fails, when the weather changes and the colder temps arrive, I get a sinus infection. I had a cold the first part of my pregnancy (for about 6 weeks…it actually started before I got preggers) and it was miserable. Thankfully, it didn’t turn into a full blow sinus infection but alas, I was doomed. The sinus infection hit last week. I took antibiotics and it seemed to be clearing up. A couple of days before the blizzard arrived I was breathing free and clear….and then the blizzard came and I woke up severely congested…..again. ARGH!

3. It’s COLD! Those that know me know that I cannot stand to be cold. Even being pregnant I am always freezing. I cannot wait until spring/summer. Everyone keeps telling me I’ll be miserable during the summer because of my pregnancy but I’m miserable now! Seriously, I can’t tell you enough how much I hate being cold. There are days when I can’t get enough clothes on and don’t even get me started on how many blankets I pile on top of me.

With all that said, I’m now going to hibernate. Wake me up when Spring gets here.
